Destination Australia Program

The aim of the Destination Australia Program is to attract and support international and domestic students to study in regional Australia, to grow and develop regional Australian tertiary education providers and offer students a high quality learning experience.

The Destination Australia Program was announced as part of the Planning for Australia’s Future Population on 20 March 2019. The program aligns with the Australian Government’s National Strategy for International Education 2025 and will offer students from Australia and overseas the opportunity to undertake high quality education, training and research in, and to experience regional and remote Australia.

How to apply for the scholarship

The program will provide grants to eligible Australian tertiary education providers to allocate, administer and promote scholarships for international and domestic students studying in regional Australia.  Students will only be able to apply for a scholarship directly with the tertiary education provider.
